MORE than 30 children dissected barn owl pellets and made model hedgehogs, squirrels, butterflies and barn owl masks on Wednesday.
They were taking part in ‘Britain’s Wildlife in Danger’, which was part of a summer workshop programme at Wisbech Museum.
The workshop was both fun and informative, raising awareness of the plight of endangered wildlife.
Sara Hawkins, the workshop organiser, said: “We made hedgehogs out of paper plates, squirrels out of toilet rolls and dissected barn owl pallets.
“The children had fun and at the same time I spoke to them about endangered wildlife and hung things on the wall to raise awareness of the issue.”
